Best Answer

George Washington (1732-1799) was the son of Augustine Washinton Sr. (1694-1743)and Augustine's second wife, Mary Ball Washington (1708-1789). George had two older half-brothers, Lawrence (1718-1752) and Augustine Washington, Jr. (1720-1762). He had five younger siblings by his mother, Mary Ball Washington, two sisters and three brothers : * Betty (later Betty Washington Lewis)- (1733-1797) * Samuel - (1734-1781) * John Augustine - (1736-1787) * Charles - (1738-1799) * Mildred (died in infancy) - (1739-1740) As shown, none of his brothers and sisters outlived him, his brother Charles dying three months before George's death. Washington had seven nieces and nephews by his brother Samuel, who was married five times. His brother John's son, Bushrod Washington (1762-1829), inherited Mount Vernon and became a Supreme Court Justice. George married Martha Dandridge Custis (1731-1802) on January 6, 1759. She had two living children, John Custis (Jacky) and Martha Custis (Patsy). Patsy died in 1774. After the death of John (Jacky) at the end of the Revolutionary War, George and Martha informally adopted Martha's grandchildren Eleanor (Nelly 1779-1852)) and George Washington Parke Custis (1781-1857). Martha Washington's great-granddaughter, Mary Anna, married Robert E. Lee. Both Robert E. Lee and Martha's great-great-grandson, George Washington Custis Lee (1832-1913) were generals in the Confederate army. George Washington's step-daughter-in-law Eleanor had nine other children, seven with her second husband, Dr. David Stuart.

George had three full brothers (Samuel, John Augustine, and Charles) and two sisters (Elizabeth and Mildred).

George also had 2 half-brothers (Lawrence, Augustine Jr.) and a half-sister (Jane), the children from his father's first marriage to Janet Butler Washington. One child of Augustine and Janet (Butler Washington) died in infancy.


Augustine Washington married twice. He had three children in his first marriage. This marriage was to Janet Butler who gave birth to three children: Lawrence, Augustine Jr. and Jane Washington. Augustine Sr. married Mary Ball after his first wife Janet passed away. The children from that second marriage were George, Elizabeth (Betty), Samuel, John Augustine, Charles, and Mildred. George was the oldest in Augustine Sr.'s second marriage and Lawrence was the oldest in the first.
